Certainly looks like they do have a trademark on "Google Wave", I don't 
know if that affects this project though, since as far as I can tell, 
it's changing names to "Wave in a Box" ?

Also, it seems they have already granted a perpetual license for any 
patents on the Wave protocol:

I'm no lawyer, so no idea what all this means practically, but I think 
it would be a good idea to clarify this in the proposal.
